BlueTarp was founded in 1999 to provide credit services designed for suppliers of building materials, who could then increase their cash flow by extending BlueTarp’s instant financing to qualified buyers. BlueTarp’s clients include national and regional suppliers across multiple industries including office supplies, hardware, home-building, building materials, lumber, tools and industrial equipment.
